False Broker arrested in Fuerteventura
Radio Sintonia:

Arrested a fake broker in Fuerteventura.

The Civil Guard of the Main Post of Corralejo on the island of Fuerteventura, arrested on February 17, 2023 a 23-year-old person, as the alleged perpetrator of a continuous crime of fraud, in addition to crimes of document falsification, simulation of crime and false denunciation, for deceiving his victims by posing as a broker, managing the Money of the injured in financial investments and ensuring them large short-term profits.


Occurrence of the facts The Civil Guard was aware as a result of complaints filed in February in the premises of the Main Post of Corralejo, coinciding with an increase in complaints for similar Events, in which the alleged perpetrator of the facts
was presented as a broker offering investors great short-term benefits, So the victims made available to the broker amounts of Money to make financial investments, justifying this profitability with false bank documentation that justified the great benefits of such investments.

Investigations and identification
The Civil Guard in the exercise of its specific functions collected all the data on the Events that occurred and carried out a thorough study of that Banking and financial documentation which allowed to verify that said documentation was false and thus being able to collect all the investigations to identify and subsequently arrest the alleged author of the facts at the airport of Fuerteventura when he tried to flee.

The proceedings together with the detainee were brought to justice of the court of Guardia de Puerto del Rosario, being released with charges.

The investigation has not concluded and it is not ruled out that there are more people scammed. Therefore, the Civil Guard encourages citizens to file a complaint if they have been victims of this type of crime.

Safety tips. How to avoid this type of scams?
The Civil Guard advises to ignore and not respond to this type of messages, in which out of nowhere makes us winners of prizes or people to receive high amounts of Money, in which we are commonly asked voluntarily to send Money without having contrasted the information.

In addition, it is recommended to distrust profiles on social networks in which they seek a relationship of affectivity or friendship suddenly, lacking such profiles of data that verify the identity of that person, even not having the vast majority of them relationship of friends, which can be a clear indication that they are suspicious profiles created specifically in a massive way to try to deceive potential victims.

Warning Banking Scams.
I was reading somewhere about an increase in scams in Spain.
Lo and behold we got one from a bank that we don,t even have an account with.
Then 2 more allegedly from our Bank,one asks to log in using their code while they check your identity.
The other asks you to check into your account via their website.
They almost appear to be like the Police checks of 2 years for nonresidents.
I checked with my Bank and they are scams.
They were sent as messages and my correspondence is solely mail/phone or email.
